So, despite my plate being more than full, I couldn't resist in being part of this blog hop and design a quilt to go with it.
I loved what was happening in front of my eyes, and I was curious to see what would take place if I started to fill in the shapes with the beautiful fabrics from the Chickadee collection. And, it didn't disappoint me! Those fabrics looked like they were specifically made for this quilt! After double and triple checking that this design really works with 10" x 10" squares, I was ready to cut into fabrics and to see how my newly created technique would work.
Well, guess what? It turns out that there are many benefits using this technique! The center points on the V Block triangle always come out perfect! The technique saves time and fabric, as usually this shape you would have to sew four seams to a block, and now you only have two seams to sew! One thing to keep in mind though - my new technique (floating V Blocks) differs a lot by how to use this amazing tool. So, if you decide to give this technique a try, pay attention to the instructions! Once you understand the technique, you will have truly a lot of fun making this quilt, and maybe designing many of your own!
What I also was amazed is how fast this quilt comes together: From the start (cutting the fabric) to finish (having quilted and binded this quilt) it only took me less than two days to make it! Now, what could be better than to make a fun quilt that looks like you had spent much longer time on creating it, and to gift it to a deserving bundle of joy! So, let's welcome Vendla's Play Date!
